Since there is no option to turn off Windows updates from Control Panel or PC Settings, here is a Trick to turn it off below this post.In Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, theses options were given:
- Download and install updates automatically
- Download automatically but let me install
- Check for updates but let me choose what to download and install (this is the one I want)
- Never check for updates
Now Windows 10 have only these options:
- Download and install automatically
- Download automatically and let me schedule a time for installation (note; there is no option NOT to install.)
Home users will not have the option to defer upgrades. The updates will download and install even if they are working on something, making the computer slow in some cases. The PC however would restart only if you are not doing anything or it would restart at the scheduled time, if you have et one.
Enterprise users will have the option to delay updates, so that they can hold it to the time when they are free.
